“Good Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

My visits there have been very pleasant every time. The food is delicious and it makes you feel welcome and at home. The price is reasonable and the service is friendly, sometimes can be a bit slow, but attentive. There dessert are always very tasty. Nice place, and cozy.

“Very enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

My wife and I ate here and we both enjoyed our meals. Service was perhaps a bit slow but very friendly. Atmosphere is good and they have a pretty extensive wine list. Prices were very reasonable - dinner for two with an appetizer (before tip) was $57. I am confident we will return.

“Good (But Not Great) Food at Reasonable Prices”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

First, the positive notes: The service was very attentive and efficient. The ambiance is charming and cozy. The assortment of desserts we tasted was very, very good. The prices are reasonable.

Next, the neutral notes: The food is good, but not exceptional. The pasta and tomato sauce are good, but bland. The appetizers are good, but not great. I had the veal parmigiano; it was good but was not as tender as it should have been.

All in all, this place is good but, in my opinion, there are many other Italian restaurants in the Bethesda area that are better.

“Wonderful meal is the norm for this Bethesda favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

We dined with College Fraternity brother and his wife and had as usaual an excellent dining experience. The restaurant offers a economical $45/couple four course menu, but we all opted for menu items and specials. The homemade tortellini and asparagus soups were flavorful and satisfying, the entrees were expertly prepared and presented and tasted superb. The dessert tray was impossible to stay away from and the cappucinos topped the evening off.

“Excellent low key Italian restaurant in Bethesda, MD.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

My husband and I have been enjoying meals at La Panetteria in Bethesda, Md. for many years. It is a quiet restaurant with excellent food. Each main dish comes with a big house salad. The prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is comfortable and attractive.
